Jbuck,

Since that listing is completed, when you click the link eBay is "helping" out by showing a current equivalent (in eBay's opinion) listing. You have to click the link on that page for the original listing to see it. Then you see a photo of the correct coin

I wasn't sure what jbuck was seeing, so thanks for the clarification, BadDog.

That's a good price that you paid Darth Morgan! Good deal! Not bad for only 120 dollars!

Hmmm, I thought Bobby recently fixed that so sold item links here pull up properly.

Anyone get anything for September yet?

I have several on the watch list. I just might pull the trigger on one this weekend.

I bought 11 blue Ikes from CCF member Imthealphaomega and they are all quite nice. Blue mint envelopes, COA and a piece of cardstock are included with each piece.

Here's one that the images don't show the luster well but trust me it is booming full mint bloom on both sides.

For starters,

What do you mean by "vacuumed"? Did you seal them with a foodsaver or something similar?

Vacuumed?

but, as far as "Now what" goes... maybe completing the series by picking up the ones you don't have

Haha. I guess that was more cryptic than necessary.

Vacuumed = yup, sealed 2.5 x 2.5 with my foodsaver.
Liberated = released them all from their various blue, brown, and black proof case/filos. 40 years in moldy American Tourister in my parents attic. Much more the stench factor than worried about ruin. They saw daylight for the first time in four decades and some literally toned before my eyes. (esp. the 75-76 clads!)

Now what?

I hear you on all on getting the rest. But I'm not much of a completist. I had so much fun discovering, marveling, admiring, cataloguing (there are many more I didn't picture or free from Proof cases—-plus books of LWCs, LWMs, Merc dimes, Jeff nickels, some rolls of Morgans/Peace, etc.) but now I just come home every day and glance at the Ikes and go, now what?

I'd be much happier helping others complete sets, do more hunting myself. I know it probably sounds like the start of a slimy pitch or a huckster sale but in truth I would rather grade all those beautiful big Ikes for the last drops of unknown excitement and then offer em up to actual admirable hobbyists like most you. I have no real interest in auctioning up and watching people scrap.

Sure, a condition rarity or oddball to sell is a different story but my reality is I have a whole bunch of really exceptional but possibly flawed a tad, great but possibly not as a great as I think, possibly marginally valuable, probably mostly easily attainable, well-preserved, nicely struck Ikes. Pretty enough to grade, too numerous enough to possibly pay that much for a number.

This is why I read all these forums/threads for months before uttering a peep. It's nice to observe the collector side versus the business side, the love of the coin folks versus the mostly honorable cutthroats who make a living and sort of find out how I am.

The "now what" comes from being really neither, a little of both, and mostly just a research/hunter hound at heart. I simply can't see shipping off 30 or so Ikes to slab merely to fulfill any portion of all of it.

So, perhaps they go back into forgotten land and I'll do this again in 40 years when I have forgotten I have them. Haha. Who knows? That was the reason for the now what question. I have that every week now.

Anyway...to be continued.

I sure have really gotten a ton more out of looking at all your favorites and coming home to my Grampa's weird beautiful company of Ikes than I ever thought I would this summer. Yeah, yeah...I might be a little hooked on your endless hobby. Ugggh, so this is my mid-40s, eh? Hahahaha.

So, to come really clean. I came home from work today and needed to use my desk, completely cluttered with Ikes in Mylar. Abandoned all hopes of getting stuff done. Perused a jbuck "You versus PCGS" post for some reason and went, "that's what a MS64 looks like?". Grabbed my loupe and hurt my eyeballs baffling myself over all my Generals all over again.

Now what, indeed.

Well, if you don't like 1976 Type 1 Ikes, then hit the BACK button now. You have been warned.......
Two BU rolls from US Mint sets. I photographed the first coin (extreme GOLD toning) a while ago and shared it here before. I did a marathon shoot recently, which was fun. It didn't take as long as I thought it would either. Just a matter of switching out each coin.

Very nice Darth Morgan!

I posted these in my proof photography thread, thought they should find a home here.
